Book of Mormon: ‘One Man’

In Moroni 7, Mormon preaches a sermon on faith, hope, and charity. Talking of faith, he says:

Moroni 7:36 Or have angels ceased to appear unto the children of men? Or has he (God) withheld the power of the Holy Ghost from them? Or will he, so long as time shall last, or the earth shall stand, or there shall be one man upon the face thereof to be saved?

Just a few years later(AD 400-421), for certain on the Americas and possibly the entire world, there was just “one man” on earth to be saved, and miracles still did occur due to his faith. That one man was none other than the son of the preacher of the sermon (Mormon): Moroni.

Mormon 8:2 …the Nephites who had escaped into the country southward were hunted by the Lamanites, until they were all destroyed.
3 And my father also was killed by them, and I even remain alone to write the sad tale of the destruction of my people. But behold, they are gone…
5 …And behold, I would write it also if I had room upon the plates, but I have not; and ore I have none, for I am alone. My father hath been slain in battle, and all my kinsfolk, and I have not friends nor whither to go; and how long the Lord will suffer that I may live I know not.
6 Behold, four hundred years have passed away since the coming of our Lord and Savior.
7 And behold, the Lamanites have hunted my people, the Nephites, down from city to city and from place to place, even until they are no more; and great has been their fall; yea, great and marvelous is the destruction of my people, the Nephites.
8 …And behold also, the Lamanites are at war one with another; and the whole face of this land is one continual round of murder and bloodshed…
9 …there are none save it be the Lamanites and robbers that do exist upon the face of the land.
10 And there are none that do know the true God save it be the disciples of Jesus (already saved), who did tarry in the land until the wickedness of the people was so great that the Lord would not suffer them to remain with the people; and whether they be upon the face of the land no man knoweth.
